Rochester, New York has very few job opportunities for people who are over 60 and have a disability. I, myself use a cane, have gone for interviews, being told that I was well qualified, however my cane was considered a safety issue (this was for a cashiers job). I have two metal hips, but presently use my cane to get into a store from my car, but where I am working right now, am on my feet constantly and don't use it while working. Many applications say they hire people regardless of age or disability, but they don't. Us older people want to work part time, but Rochester, New York has very few places that will hire us. Sincerely wish you could help! You or the Governor needs to look into age/disability friendly employment opportunities, no one seems to care!
